In a recent chat with Tony Okuyeme, Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola recounts how she felt on the day Human Rights Activists, Festus Keyamo introduced him to Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote.
I met Aliko Danoote at Festus Keyamo’s birthday last year. Mr. Keyamo introduced me to him, the next thing I noticed was that he stood up greeted me. I was surprised to see such humility.
It was an amazing encounter and I was very excited. Someone that is generally respected as the richest man in Africa, standing up to receive me, just a simple me that does not have up to one-20th of what he has.
It just shows that it is people that don’t have anything that make the loudest noise.
So, in my industry, I have learnt something, which is that humility is something that only adds to you; it does not subtract from you.
